Stumped...

This week has been a total blur...I mean really! As I sit here in my office, still and quiet for the first time this week I have absolutely no idea what to blog about. I already know what I'm going to write about next week, but this week - nada, zippo, nothing! I'm complettely stumped! I think it's because I've been so busy that I've had no real reflection time. At least I hope that's the only reason. So I'm going to turn this one on you, the reader - what exactly would you like for me to write about this week?

I'm curious about your 'shadow' and visit from school board member this week.

Wow - it's a lot easier to just read what you write than to actually have to think about the highlights of the week... I guess the highlight in first grade had to be the celebration of the 100th day of school! I am continually amazed by all that teachers are willing to do to mix learning and fun together. Hopefully many of our youngest learners have an even better idea of larger numbers after our celebration... and lots of great memories to add to their growing collection!

I LOVE our new book of the month. Maybe you could write about how perfect it is for this time of the year.

Love to hear about some of the great science lessons you have seen throughout the grade levels.MM

I would like to know what your interests are outside of Chets Creek Elementary.

I know that you are an avid Clemson football fan and that at one time, you were raising English springer spaniels. Do you have any other hobbies or interests you might like to share with us?

One idea, for now or later, Screen Free Week April 18-24. Here is an excerpt from an email I received about it: "We know that children are spending way too much time with screens—a staggering 32 hours a week for preschoolers and even more for older kids. The costs of excessive screen time are enormous—poor school performance, childhood obesity, and problems with attention are just a few.

Screen-Free Week is a fun and innovative way to improve children’s well-being by reducing dependence on entertainment screen media, including television, video games, computers, and hand-held devices. It’s a time for children to unplug and play outside, read, daydream, create, explore, and spend more time with family and friends. And, of course, Screen-Free Week isn’t just about snubbing screens for seven days; it’s a springboard for important lifestyle changes that will improve well-being and quality of life all year round."
Love your blog.

I would like to learn more about how you organize your world as a principal, mentor, teacher, wife, mother, and friend. How do you keep it all together? I want to be like YOU!! :)

I think you should write about the Book of the Month as well. I thought the book was a perfect tool not only for developing story, but to remind us of the power of conferencing in every subject matter. I heard Lucy say once that you look at the work, you give a compliment, and you send the friend away with one thing to do as a learner. She said, "You don't have to be Einstein." Just one idea to make them stronger in the area you are conferring about. I loved the work, the learning revisited and the book! Thank you!

Now that the FCAT writing test is quickly approaching, I'm wondering how you became a great writer. I am surprised that you are stumped. Your writing always seems like the thoughts come so easily.

Call me Ishmael. No, actually call me nosy, but I would like to know more about what makes you tick outside of school. You know, favorite movies, favotire songs, and pets peeves. Do you watch MMA? What do you record on your DVR? If you could have any car....? Would you travel in the Andes on a motorcycle? What were you like as a kid?

I guess I just want a biography, in your spare time :-}

Peace,

Wow, so many great ideas for blog posts. I would address each one that took the time to comment!

Dorry Lopez said...

I agree, Melanie, what fabulous ideas for posts! I, too, want to know about all of the above. I want you to blog about your organizational skills and how you juggle everything, such as how you organize your emails, your files, your "to do" lists, your paperwork, your in-coming/out-going mail, your planner, and the multitude of other duties, stacks of papers, and systems required for this job. So many people would benefit and have a less stressful life if you would be willing to share your strategies. See, now you don't even have to think about WHAT to blog. We have given you enough topics to last for awhile!

I would love to know about your first year as a teacher.
